[The day of Thomas J.'s funeral. Vada has locked herself in her room.]
Shelley: She won't come out! It's been a whole day. You have to do something, Harry!
Harry: The funeral's starting!
Shelley: Open your eyes! She's 11 years old! Her only friend in the world is dead!
Harry: I know that, but what do you want from me?
Shelley: Stop hiding, Harry! You run, Harry. When I first came here, the idea of working with dead people didn't exactly thrill me. When I saw that a family lived here, I thought if I'm living without a family, then at least I can work with one and maybe, once in a while, be invited in for supper.
Harry: Yeah - and when those suppers are disrupted because there's a car crash, or there's a fire, or a little boy steps on a beehive!...
Shelley: I'm not asking you to stop caring for those people! But life isn't just death, Harry! Don't ignore the living... especially your daughter.
